Half-Priced Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two things you need so as to host a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk space on a web server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two linked, yet different services, and you demand both of them to have a functioning website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between one and ten yrs. They may include additional specifications about the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting corporations provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from one and the same website hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.pifusionx.com and ns2.pifusionx.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the chance to change the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Stable Website Hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will receive different online services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you have on the server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create email boxes like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web page, being online and being allowed to use electronic mails with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you get with a website hosting account. If you manage a business web portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. That is the reason why you demand a trustworthy hosting vendor that will deliver a dependable and stable web hosting service.
